WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross has said he would like to see the WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins booked differently.
The former WWE commentator has answered more questions on his Q&A section on his website. One of the questions was about the way the WWE are currently booking their World Heavyweight Champion.
The argument by the person who asked the question was because Rollins has lost cleanly to the United States Champion John Cena twice in the space of 24 hours, it makes him look like a weak champion.

They also mentioned that he loses quite a lot for a champion, and that maybe the WWE should consider booking him better. They ask, was bad creative writing? Or is there some logic behind the booking?
Ross replied: "Booking is highly subjective and can’t truly be judged over the short term. I’d likely tweak how Rollins is being booked, but that doesn’t make me right either. I think WWE is setting him up for an eventual ‘face turn down the road and I have no issues with where Seth is at this time at it’s a marathon and not a sprint even though many fans today have little to no patience."
I can see both sides of the story with this one. Ross believes fans should be invested in Rollins now and just have a little patience, but it's difficult to believe in a wrestler succeeding when you are constantly seeing them lose.
I can't see Rollins losing cleanly a lot more often now until we get closer to WrestleMania season. He certainly wouldn't be losing against Kane, who is looking to be his opponent for the Hell in a Cell pay-per-view on October 25. He should actually be winning cleanly in that match to properly push him over as a force not to be messed with.
In fact, if he didn't win cleanly against Kane, then that would be bad creative writing!
